Japantown Trip | Exploring San Francisco Neighborhoods

At the end of of the year, we took a little intercity trip to Japantown, to pick-up some Japanese groceries: Kenkyo Mayo, ramen-making supplies, and Boss Coffee, amongst our favorite things.

It’s the best we could do right now during the Pandemic, to pretend we’re on a trip to somewhere interesting. 

a bit of a ‘tourist in your own back yard’ mentality

On that day, we didn’t make it to our target store, Nijiya Market, as you can see, the lines were prohibitive. 

We’d like to go back and try Yama-Chan Takoyaki stand 🐙

So for last night’s New Years abiding, Paula prepared the ‘end of the year’ Ramen, with all the goodies we had picked-up on our little shopping trip. 

Although Japantown looked like a ghost-town and small businesses are not doubt struggling, the lines of people, lining up to their favorite Japanese Market, showed that there’s still a pulse, a heart-beat for the vibrancy that exists in San Francisco neighborhoods. 


and that Boss coffee is just going to have to wait..
